  • Prices of the 124 units initially ranged from US $250,000 to $500,000 as of fall 2004.
  • The high-rise's foundation of 485 friction pilings drilled 65 to 85 feet underground maximizes the building's wind load capacity.
  • The tower was the first high-rise built in Fort Myers in 15 years since the city's first building boom of the 1980s.
  • The high-rise tower is located just southwest across Billy's Creek from Alta Mar.
  • The luxury high-rise is located just northeast of Marriott Calusa Harbour along the Caloosahatchee River.
  • The high-rise contains 5 penthouse floor plans and 5 units per penthouse floor.
  • The high-rise tower offers spectacular night views as well, as the condominiums overlook glittering downtown Fort Myers and the distant Sanibel lighthouse beacon on the horizon.
  • The luxury high-rise tower is located on the east side of Fort Myers' downtown historic district.
  • The building's completion was the first of a building boom of numerous luxury high-rise condos in Fort Myers.
  • The high-rise's reinforced design will be able to withstand gusting winds of up to 130 miles per hour.
  • The high-rise's name, The Beau Rivage, means "beautiful river," referring to the Caloosahatchee River, which the luxury residential tower overlooks.
  • Developers advertise the luxury high-rise tower as expressing "tropical urbanism".
  • When the luxury high-rise was proposed to the Fort Myers City Council, members of the council unanimously approved the building's construction, deeming the residential tower "a wonderful solution" for supporting Fort Myers' downtown shopping district.
  • The waterfront high-rise's condominium units range in size from 1,315 square feet to 3,600 square feet.
  • The high-rise offers its residents spectacular views over the Caloosahatchee River as well as the many bridges that link Fort Myers and North Fort Myers.
  • The luxury residential high-rise contains 5 typical floor plans with 6 units per typical floor.
  • Developers of the high-rise boast that the structure is a product of advanced technologies, as the building's wind load capacity greatly exceeds current wind codes and is designed to protect against moisture intrusion and sound pollution.
  • Wind tunnel tests were conducted on a scale model of the building in order to test the high-rise's integrity in hurricane force winds.
  • Artistic renderings indicate that a flagpole was planned for atop the building, where a flag with The Beau Rivage colors (yellow, blue, and white) would have flown.
  • The luxury residential high-rise topped out in December 2003 and was ready for occupancy in late fall of 2004.
  • The building's amazingly quick sell-out sparked an interest in the redevelopment of downtown Fort Myers.
